🌷 Most Relatable Character? 🌷

Julian Blackthorne character artI have to go with…. Julian Blackthorn. Turn off those pesky emotions? Yes please!

πŸ“š : Queen of Air and Darkness (Dark Artifices #3) by Cassandra Clare

πŸ–‹οΈ : Review (hosted on old site)


🌷 Most Pure Animal companion? 🌷

Okay, so Abraxos won’t really fit in this category but guess who does! Have you guessed? Well, I am actually not going to pick a character from a book, but rather when I redid my Pottermore Wizarding World Passport. My patronus, a Mastiff! Who I have decided to call Oliver. Yes, I am naming my patronus.

🌷 Fiercest Fighter 🌷

Our Bloody Pearl by D.N. Brynn book cover Definitely Perle and Dejean from Our Bloody Pearl, they are both so fierce and won’t give up on their goals – or each other.

πŸ“š : Our Bloody Pearl (The Treacherous Tides #1) by D.N. Brynn

πŸ–‹οΈ : Review (on old site)

🌷 Am surprised that I loved you? 🌷

Cardan character art
Probably Cardan from the Folk of the Air series. I really really like Cardan, even though he has done so many things that say β€œhaha I am a meanie poo”. I think I just have a thing for arrogant and slightly careless characters of power.

πŸ“š : The Wicked King (Folk of the Air #2) by Holly Black

🌷 Best sass master? 🌷

Rowan Whitethorn character art Rowan Whitethorn. He is just so snarky, and not only does he not take Aelin’s crap, but he also is so sassy and witty and OML Sarah, what have you done to me? Can I stop swooning over the Fae now? #faeisbae

πŸ“š : Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas

🌷 Best Anti-Hero? 🌷

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake book cover
Katherine from Three Dark Crowns. I have some really mixed opinions about her as a character – and therefore question her actions and motives – but I think (?) she fits into this category.

πŸ“š : Three Dark Crowns series by Kendare Blake

🌷 Best friends of all? 🌷

The Golden trio! Duh! Who else deserves this title? NO ONE! THAT’S WHO!

πŸ“š : The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

🌷 Best villain to hate? 🌷

Maven Calore character artMaven Calore! I don’t know why, but this goes back to my point about Cardan ^^. I just really love Maven, but I also love to hate him. Yet I sympathise for him. And I protect him from criticism where I can. But I still hate him.

πŸ“š : The Red Queen Series by Victoria Aveyard

🌷 Award for the best and worst YA parents? 🌷

Best : I am obviously going to say the Weasleys even if HP is kinda more advanced Middle grade. Sue me! (Actually please don’t, I am so broke and I need my money for coffee and books!)
πŸ“š : The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Worst :I am going to say Kiko’s mother from Starfish. I found her to be so irritating and self-centered, and the fact that to anyone else, and had the story been told from anyone’s perspective other than Kiko’s, her mother would have just seemed a little bit vain.
πŸ“š : Starfish Series by Akemi Dawn Bowman

🌷 Ship of All Ships for 2019? 🌷

Christina, Kerian and Mark character artShip of all ships for 2019? I am so sad that I haven’t seen more of this ship around! I really ship Mark X Keiran X Christina. Yes, all three of them. Yes, together. Yes, I ship it. No, I won’t apologise.

πŸ“š : Queen of Air and Darkness (Dark Artifices #3) by Cassandra Clare

πŸ–‹οΈ : Review (hosted on old site)

🌷 Most Precious, Must Be Protected! 🌷

Aziraphale character artAziraphale from Good Omens. He must be protected at all costs. I need him to be safe with Crowley forever and ever and ever and ever. Or I will cry again.

πŸ“š : Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.


🌷 Honestly Surprised You’re Still Alive? 🌷

Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott and Others book cover Stella from Five Feet Apart. Especially with what happened at the lake. I am surprised that it didn’t take a worse turn.

πŸ“š : :Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott and Others.



🌷 Award for making the worst decisions? 🌷

Imma go with Aelin. She is constantly being super self-sacrificing and needs to take a bit of a chill pill. Also do you guys like the picture of her I drew? I did it on GIMP, so I’m kinda surprised it turned out so well on just a photo editing software.

πŸ“š : Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas

🌷 Most in Need of a Nap? 🌷

Me and Megan. We both need a nap. We are both characters in the books of our lives. Please, save us from our sleeplessness.

🌷 Want to Read More About You?> 🌷

Our Bloody Pearl by D.N. Brynn book cover I really want to read more about Dejean before he met Perle. He seems like he has such an awesome back story, and if the author ever does a novella about him, I will be right onto it!

πŸ“š : Our Bloody Pearl (The Treacherous Tides #1) by D.N. Brynn

    Awww the golden trio of course! I love HP and the trios are so lerfevt πŸ’› I’d also say the RR groups because they are LEGENDARY.
    Emma, I’d say you’re more of a Maven-fangirl than a hater tbh πŸ˜‚ let’s be real here O.o
    THAT DRAWING FOR THE SHIPS IS SOOO GOOD OMG. I always say Percabeth but only 2019?? Then idk πŸ˜‚
    Your aelin pic is BAE and I know you already showed it to me but it’s bAe. Aelin is a literal fiery goddess with overwhelming snark and bad attitudes and we love her for that!
    This is a huge comment so I’m sorry, but what a fun post!! πŸ’›

  3. I think picking your patronus is the perfect answer to the most pure animal companion question (: and I love Julian but still need to read the final book. Ah I’m hopeless πŸ™ˆ the Weasleys are wonderful parents. Off the top of my head worst YA one from this year would be from Stepsister out of what I’ve read. I’ve only seen the film of Five Feet Apart but I totally agree with you about it. And your picture of Aelin is amazing!! I could never draw like that.
